Create a list "From Excel" or "From existing list" option is missing / Sharepoint 365

Copper Contributor



I have "main" site on my sharepoint and the subsite. 

In that subsite I want to create a sharepoint list based on another list but when I click "New" I only get panel with the option to fill List Name and description. 

When I try the same in my main site I see all available options but I need that list to be created in the subsite. What could be the reason for that? Could it be some subsite settings that has to be changed? 


Regards :)

I have this same issue in a subsite.



I have the same issue. Feature works from main site, but not from subsite.

This is related to type of subsite we choose while creating the site. I don't remember now which one has this feature, probably not the 'modern' one.


Thank you for following up!


If you choose "Team site (classic experience)", the option create a list "From Excel" or "From existing list" are available.
